Open Positions at the Center for Climate Science

Postdoctoral Position in Regional Climate Change, Drought, and Wildfire

The UCLA Center for Climate Science seeks a postdoctoral scholar, supervised by Prof. Alex Hall. The position would begin as soon as possible. It would initially be for one year, but is renewable for one or more years contingent on satisfactory progress.

The general research area is using global and regional climate models to understand climate change impacts on drought, vegetation, and wildfire in California. The science you will produce will be of great interest to water managers, forest and fire managers, and other stakeholders, and there is the potential to interact with the stakeholder community. This project is part of a larger effort within the UCLA Center for Climate Science to understand the future of hydrologic extremes.

Any candidate with interest in this topic is invited to apply. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences or a related field, effective oral and written communication skills, and strong programming and analytical skills.

Applicants should submit (1) a statement of research interests and goals, no longer than one page, and (2) a complete CV, including contact information for three references. These materials should be addressed to Ms. Katharine Reich at kreich@ioes.ucla.edu. Consideration of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.

Postdoctoral Position in Regional Climate Change

The UCLA Center for Climate Science seeks a postdoctoral scholar, supervised by Prof. Alex Hall. The position would begin as soon as possible. It would initially be for one year, but is renewable contingent on satisfactory progress.

The general research area is downscaling global climate model output to produce credible high-spatial-resolution projections of anthropogenic climate change over the Western U.S., analyze these projections, and develop innovative and more accurate downscaling methods that can be applied more broadly. The science you will produce will be of great interest to water managers and other stakeholders, and there is the potential to interact with the stakeholder community.

Any candidate with interest in this topic is invited to apply. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences or a related field, effective oral and written communication skills, and strong programming and analytical skills. A strong background in statistics is also desirable.

Applicants should submit (1) a statement of research interests and goals, no longer than one page, and (2) a complete CV, including contact information for three references. These materials should be addressed to Ms. Katharine Reich at kreich@ioes.ucla.edu. Consideration of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
